They certainly talked to a lot of the right people in the accessibility 
world. A very nice article.

HOWEVER ... One of the most interesting things they talk about is the 
automatic creation of an embossable braille file from any article on the 
Casper Star Tribune web site (equivalent to & placed right next to 
"Printer-Friendly"). This sounds fantastic, but when I try to use the 
braille feature the downloads come through as empty files. Am I missing 
something? Can anyone else get it to work?

(Open any article. The "Braille File" link is at the end of the article text.)

Thanks,
Patrick
